Isn't that Odom's position? it leads me now to believe that odom will play the 4 this year and lose his wing position


i thought everyone wanted to keep kwame at center? and trade mihm

if so, that means odom plays the 4

and with devean most likely leaving, the lakers need a 3 along with luke walton

I'm glad that the Lakers FO is finally looking at players who are athletic and defense-minded instead of matadors like Sasha and Cook. White at #26 would be an outstanding pick.

Maybe if the Lakers get the pick from the Miles trade(if we do it), then use that to pick him.

So does Wafer. I'd rather try and bring Wafer along then draft a clone of him. Mind you, White is likely the better of the 2 at this point, but, I believe Wafer is younger. Not to mention the fact we already spent the pick on him.

It doesn't matter who we pick up at #26. Who ever it is won't get any playing time. Anyone out of the top 10 ten pick won't get PT from Phil Jackson.

Damn, 3rd pick? Over D-wade? I guess he was highly regarded. Kind of disturbing that he is now so far from the #3 pick.

He is a very athletic player but thats it.

BTW, check out who was projected to be last pick? Marcus Banks... :mhihi:

But I wouldn't mind drafting James White, he could be good addition.

If the guy is that highly regarded coming out of high school, even drawing comparison to Vince Carter, I actually think it would give the Lakers FO more reason to roll the dice on him at #26. Some players just couldn't excel at the college level but blossomed at the pro level. Arenas, Spree, and Prince are good examples. Picking that late in the draft, L.A. doesn't have much to lose taking a chance on White.

Hey, if the Lakers could manage to attain another, earlier first round pick without giving up #26, I'd be just fine with him being the choice. However, if that doesn't happen, please see Wafer.

I hope he's still there at 26 on draft night. People have been pumping him up lately.
